Report: West Ham now really trying to sign £33m ‘complete player’, he can play in multiple positions
The report claims that Kehrer is West Ham’s number one defensive target, as they look to improve their central defensive options.
Issa Diop had also ruled himself out of playing amid speculation about his future, and a deal has reportedly been agreed for him to join Fulham.
West Ham pushing to sign Kehrer
In that time, he’s gone on to make his Germany debut and earn 20 caps for his country, and has played right across the back line when called up by Hansi Flick, who once called him a ‘complete player’.
Kehrer made 27 league appearances for PSG last season, although saw his game time reduced towards the end of the season.
One of Kehrer’s main focuses going into this season will be maintaining his place in the Germany squad ahead of November’s World Cup.
If this game time in France is likely to be limited, a move to West Ham would make a lot of sense for both parties.
The defender has plenty of Champions League experience, and would likely be more than capable of stepping into a Premier League defence.
West Ham have also been chasing a left-back, with Angelino one option previously mentioned, and when all of the Hammers’ centre-back options are fit, Kehrer is more than capable of filling in on the left is needed.
